Great tour. Very informative and interesting. Travis was a great tour guide with a good sense of humour and a sound knowledge of the underworld. Loved every minute of it

My husband and I had a great time on this very interesting tour, Even though we live in Melbourne we learnt lots of new and interesting facts about our city. Travis was our guide and he was great, he made us feel we were the only ones on the tour, with his friendly and informative manner.

I booked this tour manly for my boyfriend who is really into the gangland stories of Melbourne. My knowledge about it was average but that really didn't matter cos our tour guide Travis was a great story teller. Not only was the stories interesting but at the same time we got to see a lot of Melbourne.

This tour is a very interesting and totally comprehensive look into various crimes throughout Melbourne's history. Right back to Ned Kelly days, through to Hoddle St, Painters and Dockers and (I think!) most intriguingly the more recent happenings as documented in Channel Nine's "Underbelly". Not only are you told so much information about each location and situation, but you are... More

I wanted to do the tour as something a bit quirky and because I had watched the Underbelly series. Not sure I would do it again as upon reflection it seemed to glorify all the crime that had occurred in Melbourne to date, which is my issue, and nothing to do with the tour operators. Was interesting to see different... More

My husband booked this and also dinner at what was once known as 'La Porcella' for our 'Underbelly weekend' in Melbourne. We dined at the East Imperial on the Sat night (my husband even went looking for the bullet hole that allegedly was left when Andrew 'Benji' Veniamin was murdered on the 23rd March 2004). Dave our tour guide was... More

I booked this tour as having watched underbelly and read about the Melbourne Gang Wars I wanted more info. From the blurb and reviews, I was expecting four hours of places and facts. Our tour guide, Matt, was informative, but seemed to struggle to articulate and drive. This made it seem a bit disjointed in places. Also, they advertise this... More

I was very disappointed for a few reasons. Firstly I was very excited as the reviews seemed positive. They must be from the owners of the tour as it was very different from our experience. Being new to Melbourne and the Gangland Wars I was keen to do the tour. Secondly, it should NOT be advertised as a 4 hour... More

Rhys was an awesome tour guide, and this tour was so much better than I expected. I was dubious about going on the tour and didn't hold out much hope for being entertained, but it was awesome! Obviously some of the details and crimes are not for the faint-hearted, but Rhys did an excellent job of explaining the personalities and... More

Thanks very much for your review. We're always pleased when our tour exceeds expectations, as it can be a bit hard to convey exactly what this tour is about. It's nice to know you found the tour entertaining, as we do endeavour to present the tour information in a really interesting fashion. Thanks again! More
